Bring more light to The Drag.

The Drag(Guadalupe St), with its convenient location and many food options, it is a hotspot visited daily by many UT students. UT has shown that the safety of their students is of main priority and that is why there needs to be something done about the need for light posts in some spots of The Drag. In the corner of Guadalupe and 22nd St, specially in front of the University Baptist Church, the darkness raises many safety concerns for pedestrians. There is also the need of light posts along 21st St between Guadalupe and San Antonio St. As a female UT student when I walked in those areas at night, I must carry my pepper spray unlocked in my hand at all times. By placing light posts in these areas, not only will students feel safer, it will make Austin safer.
